Simple Energy's bossman also informed that its second product will be announced around the same time. “After One, our second offering will be announced in June this year. It will be a more affordable scooter against our current performance-oriented One e-scooter," said Suhas Rajkumar, CEO, Simple Energy.

The upcoming scooter will be a completely new model altogether and won't be an extension of the existing One scooter. It will also use a new platform, and understandably a smaller battery and motor. While Rajkumar didn't share any further details on the upcoming offering, he did inform that the new scooter will be more affordable and priced competitively against the current mass-market rivals. “Not everyone wants a performance e-scooter, thus the new offering will target buyers with a slightly tighter budget," added Rajkumar.

The scooter is most likely to go on sale in the market later this year. More details are likely to be announced in the next few months. Meanwhile, the company has recently signed a MoU with C4V, a lithium-ion battery technology company for setting up a Lithium-ion cell manufacturing ecosystem in India. More details here
